X-Pact® Electrode Control

Challenges

  • Conventional work roll spray cooling systems are operating at 12 bar with ~10 000 l/min per stand
  • Operational costs for energy and spare parts (nozzles and valves)

Solution

  • Work roll cooling based on forced convection principle

Technical advantages

  • Higher cooling capacity compared to conventional spray cooling
  • Reduction of required pump energy

Productivity

  • Higher productivity by efficient power input
  • Return of investment: less than 12 months possible*

 

 

* depending on furnace size, existing operation conditions, raw material etc.
